Ignion, an antenna producer, has formed a technical relationship with Murata. Murata components will be used as a foundation for Ignion’s Antenna Intelligence Cloud development. By allowing IoT developers to correctly and rapidly incorporate Virtual Antenna® into their own products, the new online service provides designers with an antenna cloud computing and artificial intelligence solution. The Antenna Intelligence Cloud employs machine learning to generate a realistic simulation of the real-world performance of the end-device, offering accurate and dependable design help for the IoT ecosystem, based on years of experience and thousands of designs done.
Murata’s ceramic capacitors and RF coils’ high Q values and tight tolerances will be critical to Ignion’s cloud-based service, allowing for a more reliable and predictable antenna integration process. The tried-and-true technique improves the RF performance of linked devices, lowering development costs and decreasing time-to-market.
“We are pleased to see our technology contribute to the antenna revolution that Ignion is driving,” said Takayuki Kaneko, Strategic Marketing, Product Marketing Unit of Murata. “This partnership proves that we can provide the IoT industry with the tools needed to enhance the development and manufacture of the necessary devices, enabling them to create much closer approximations to early-stage simulations.”
The Antenna Intelligence Cloud service was created by Ignion to encourage innovation and versatility in the creation of IoT end-products. It combines advanced simulation with machine learning to eliminate the requirement for actual hardware development. The service assists developers in meeting the changing needs of 5G, Wi-Fi 6E, LoRaWAN, and UWB devices, as well as devices with multiple radios.
Jaap Groot, CEO at Ignion, said “This partnership allows us to provide an accurate and predictable Virtual Antenna™ design that IoT makers can easily replicate and implement in their hardware designs, eliminating delays in the design phase.”
